NGC 4435 & NGC 4438: Galaxy Pair (Virgo) RA: 12h 29.6m / DEC: +13° 49'.0
Instrument: 10-inch Starfinder

NGC 4435 & NGC 4438 This sketch includes M86 to help you get your bearings. It's positioned inside the field boundary to the northwest. NGC 4425 is the 180"x30", 11.8 magnitude galaxy 19' southeast of M86 just inside the field boundary. NGC 4435 and NGC 4438 are seen 20' to the northeast. NGC 4435 is a 45"x30", 10.8 magnitude oval. NGC 4438 is larger, elongated northeast-to-southwest and 10.1 magnitude. Eight field stars frame the view. This pair is separated by about 4'. The sketch at left presents a 129X view in my 10-inch Meade Starfinder equatorial Newtonian.
